The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG65 is a six megapixel camera with a 5x optical zoom lens, and as with its CG6 sibling offers uninterpolated still images to a maximum of 2816 x 2112 pixels. Where the CG6's VGA movie mode uses the MPEG-4 file format, the CG65 offers MPEG-4 AVC H.264 (.MP4) video - said to yield file sizes 25% smaller than a regular MPEG-4 video.
Most other Sanyo CG65 features seem similar to the CG6: images are stored on SD cards, including the newer SDHC types, while a 2.5" flip-out LCD display serves as the sole method of framing or reviewing images. The Sanyo Xacti CG65 also includes NTSC / PAL video output, USB 2.0 high-speed computer connectivity, and a built-in flash strobe. VPC-CG65 images are captured with a program mode or seven scene modes, with shutter speeds ranging from 4 - 1/2000 second, and ISO sensitivity from 50 to 1600.
The Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG65 goes on sale from April 2007, priced at US$399.99 - a $70 premium over the CG6 model.
